He is worth the wait I promise! He is very caring and listens well. One of the most best doctors I've had in a long time. His wait time is sooo long but it is soooo worth it because he actuallyspeaks with you and not rush just to get another patient checked off the list.

My visit was great. The only draw back was I had to leave and come back because they only accept cash co-pays as supposed to credit or debit transactions, I thought was kinda weird. However, as soon as I came back,the doctor was able to see me without a wait, which I thought was cool. He seem very personable and attentive. Was even able to set a appointment for a procedure the very same week. That's cool for folks on the go, like me. At the end of the day, was satisfied.

It was a wonderful first time experience. The workers were patience and polite. The doctor was very caring, and concern as if he was treating someone in his immediate family. I would recommend anyone who has never done a colonoscopy. Great Job guys.

Dr Cohen is a wonderful doctor. He shows concern, he discusses clearly your condition and course of treatment. But there's a lack respect for patient time. I had a 9:00am appt. got there about 8:30am didn't see Dr Cohen until after11:15am & had to argue with staff for that to happen. I don't mind waiting for an hour to see the doctor but over two hours is way too much & did I mention I only saw him for 5 minutes. My other issue with Dr Cohen & his staff is that they skip you to see other patient. I will finish my course of treatment with dr Cohen but any new issues, I will look for another doctor.

The wait time was extremely and ridiculously long. I signed in @ 11:23 am, and wasn't seen by the doctor until 3:18pm. he is a pretty good doctor, very straight forward and honest, but the wait time is just too long.Although my insurance didn't cover the visis like ZocDoc said it would, but it was cool.

Very nice man, doctor Cohen. He seems caring and sincere. Clean office, however the wait is forever. I had a 1:30 appointment I didn't see him till 5:30, I really was wondering why everyone had a book or a tablet out.Soon I wished I would have brought a book as well. So eat , charge your phone and bring a book before you go there.

DR. COHEN IS AWESOME!! Seriously. The wait time at his office was quite long, but it was well worth the wait. To be honest, I would be more skeptical of a dr who doesn't have a long wait time because itmakes it seam like they are just rushing through patients. Dr. Cohen is professional, answers questions honestly, and will take the time to make you feel totally a-okay. And this coming from history's worst, most anxiety ridden, hypochondriac!

I really liked Dr Cohen, his manner was very friendly and he dealt with my complaint excellently, I felt very satisfied with my visit. However the wait time was ridiculous, i waited for 1.5 hours to see him! It was thelast day before he was leaving for vacation so I think that was the issue on that particular day. The receptionists were very helpful and managed the situation well. I would definitely recommend Dr Cohen but do be prepared for a bit of a wait.

What a wonderful experience with Dr. Cohen! He made me feel welcome and comfortable right away. Very friendly, warm and personable. He clearly cares very much about his patients. It was a long wait time, but worth it. I recommend takinga walk down the beautiful block he is located on like I did, and by the time I got back it was my turn. I highly recommend and will be going back!

I had seen another GI doctor prior to Dr. Cohen, and am so glad I made the apt. to see Dr. Cohen. He was very professional, listened intently to my history, and was extremely helpful in discussing follow-up tests to figure out what was going on with my GI tract.
